Driven Brands Car Wash North America has announced the acquisition of four Arland Car Wash locations in southwest Florida: one in Lehigh Acres, another in Port Richey, and two in Brooksville.

Arland Car Wash is a family-owned business started by Arcip Horobet, opening his first location in Knoxville, TN in 2008. Horobet sold that location in 2015, and then opened five locations in Florida starting in 2017.

“Our business has done very well in Florida, and we have a great relationship with the local communities,” said Horobet.

“The Florida market is a great market and a major focus for us to continue to build our network,” said Driven Brands Car Wash North America president Gabe Mendoza.

Driven Brands Car Wash is the world’s largest car wash operator. Driven Brands entered the car wash industry in 2020 with the acquisition of International Car Wash Group and operates more than 900 locations in 14 countries across the United States, Europe, and Australia, with over 200 locations in the United States.
